Today’s Al Roker has an emotional farewell to a friend in new pictures as wife Deborah Roberts says she will “miss your light”.
AL Roker had an emotional farewell to his church leader over the weekend.
The Today Show weatherman, 68, was captured hugging Eva Suarez after their service at St. James Church in New York.
As wife Deborah Roberts, 62, shared a photo of Eva singing at church on Sunday.
She captioned it: “I will miss your light.”
Deborah then posted a snap of Al and Eva smiling as they leaned in for a hug.
Deborah, Al and their son Nick, 20, all posed with Eva in another picture, which Deborah captioned, “I wish you happiness!”
It is unclear if Eva is leaving the church.
The family’s church attendance comes as Al continues to recover from his recent health problems.
He was hospitalized twice last year for blood clots in his legs and lungs.
The beloved meteorologist was absent from the morning show for nearly two months.

He tried to regain weight and strength after his hospital stays.
When Al finally returned to the morning show in early January, Deborah was also back working on ABC’s newsroom.
He confessed: “Look, I had two complicated things. I had blood clots which they think appeared after I had COVID in September.
“And then I had this internal bleeding, I lost half my blood. They were trying to find out where it was.”
Deborah’s husband joked that he “went in for one surgery” and “got four for free.”
AS A RETURN
Al was applauded by his co-hosts as he made his comeback on the Today Show.
Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Craig Melvin clapped and cheered him after he delivered his first weather report of the year.
Savannah and Hoda started the show by taking Al to the set and hugging him.
Hoda was in tears as Al said, “It’s great to be back,” and held her hands.
He jokingly added, “And to wear pants!”
The fans were just as emotional as the hosts and took to Twitter to express their joy.
“Look at Al!! Makes the weather like it never left!!! Thank you for keeping your vows to your King Queen Deborah!! wrote fan.
“Everything is fine again. Welcome home Al! We missed you so much,” said another.
A third added: “Welcome back Al. I wish you good health in 2023 (calm down mate, take some time off if needed).”
